Re: Would you consider donating your egg or sperm?

BEIJING: China's hospitals are offering sperm donors about 5,000 yuan ($785.05) to meet the demand of infertile couples. Female egg donors are paid three to four times more since egg extraction is a complicated process, a source said.

Major hospitals make it mandatory for donors to visit the sperm centre about 10 times, and the hospital will have the right to impregnate up to five women with the sperm. The Jiangsu Provincial recently announced it was raising the price from 4,000 yuan to 5,000 yuan per donor.

Donors must sign a contract saying they would not go to any other sperm bank. The idea is to enable one institution to track an individual and avoid the possibility of incest, in case future descendants of a particular donor marry or have a sexual relationship.

In India, hospitals pay sperm donors about Rs 300 to Rs 500 despite the rush caused by a recent Bollywood movie, Vicky Donor.

No. I just wouldn't want to know that possibly some random kid out there was actually mine.

Not really. But feels like such a waste getting flushed down the toilet.

Can't they remove the DNA of the donor and insert your own?

I think I read that somewhere.

The Government just FORCED a woman to abort her 7-month of foetus. Just a few days ago.

Re: Would you consider donating your egg or sperm?

East Asian women can make 20k or so selling them. That's about x3 more than women from other ethnicities. Big demand from infertile Asian couples in the U.S. with big bucks. I think the same thing applies for Jews as well.

Re: Would you consider donating your egg or sperm?

Not really.

But that article is really interesting, just another side effect of the favoritism towards boys in China

If they had paid more attention to girls, I don't think you would see such a systematic and high demand for eggs.

Re: Would you consider donating your egg or sperm?

Only if I had to. It's pretty invasive, so I'm not keen.

Unlike sperm donation, women don't really get pleasure out of it.

Re: Would you consider donating your egg or sperm?

If it's really needed then yes. Probably to help somebody I guess.
